My Review

A wonderful story from an author whose books always portray the emotions so well from the highs to the lows.

Lottie is a driven character who is so focused on work that she has stopped looking at what is going on around her and is always busy planning for her next case. After the loss of her Grandmother, Lottie is trying to spend more time with her Grandfather, aim for the promotion at work and fulfil her roles as bridesmaid to her best friend Amy and spend time with her boyfriend Luke.

As life continues to pile on the pressure she becomes so focused on work everything starts to fall out the bottom and her Grandfather tries to help her by getting her to join his gin loving friends for the evening.

This book is full of wonderful characters, I am a sucker for having a giggle with men who remind me of my Grandad and loved the men that formed the friendship group. This book made me laugh, it made me feel sad for Lottie and made me cry happy tears.

A superb book that takes you on a journey with a host of lovely characters that you just know you would love to spend time with. Another wonderful book by Rosie Blake and I can’t wait to see what she releases next!


Book Blurb

Bring the sparkle and fizz back into your life with the help of The Gin O’Clock Club

Lottie is always in a hurry, rushing through her days ticking tasks off her to-do lists. Teddy is worried about his granddaughter – and he knows that his late wife, Lily, would have known exactly what to say to make things better. Now that Lily has gone, it’s up to Teddy to talk some sense into Lottie.

With the help of Arjun, Geoffrey and Howard, the elderly reprobates who make up his Gin O’Clock Club, Teddy makes a plan to help Lottie find her way back to the things that really matter – family, friendship and love. But as Lottie balances a high-powered job with her reluctant attendance at whist drives, ballroom dances and bingo, Teddy wonders if she’s really ready to open up her heart to the possibility of true happiness…

Laugh, cry and fall in love with this colourful cast of characters in THE feel-good novel of the year

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
